[802SEC] 802-SEC reflector delay


I recognize that some/many/most of you may have little interest in this
topic, but I find my recent experience with my emails on "802.20
affirmation" rather curious.

As you probably know, I sent an email on the above topic Tuesday and
then resent the email on Wednesday as I had not received my copy for the
initial email from the 802-SEC reflector.  I have now received my copy
from both transmissions, but after significant delays (> 34 hours and >
13 hours).  Just for amusement, I asked Buzz Rigsbee for his copies on
the emails.  The total end to end delays for his copies were both under
7 minutes.  (The delays times were extracted from the complete email
headers.  All times were converted to GMT.)  The details are in the
following table

Any thoughts?  Maybe I have the wrong karma.



In the following table, dates are in the format YYMMDD and
times are in the format HH:MM:SS.  All event times are GMT.
